If you have elder abuse concerns, our Estate Planning Lawyers and Estate Litigation Attorneys can help. Feel free to contact us for a free consultation.
For more than two decades Klenk Law has focused only on Estate and Elder Abuse Law. We’ve seen it all, and this experience allows us to explain complex estate law techniques clearly and concisely. If you are involved in an elder abuse situation our experienced Estate Planning and Estate Litigation Attorneys will make it easy for you to understand your options and provide top notch representation.
Many firms assign Estate Litigation cases to their young lawyers or a general litigator. This is not cost effective. Being that Estate Litigation is what we do, our experience allows us to focus quickly on the issues that matter. By being focused, we arrive at the most cost efficient plan. We find the solution to your problem while the others are just warming up.
While some firms litigate, few of them have whole departments focused exclusively on estate matters. At Klenk Law, our Elder Abuse Litigators have the luxury of partnering with other lawyers from our Estate Administration or Estate Planning Departments. The depth of experience we can focus on your case is truly impressive. Whatever issue you are facing, our team has the answer.
Always professional and very responsive. Everyone on the staff that I have worked with. I look forward to continuing our relationship.
Knowledgeable lawyers, helpful attitude, fair fees.
Peter has done our family's trust and estate work since our children were born. He is not only extremely knowledgeable and honest but makes sure that our arrangements remain current with the changing legal landscape. I would give him my highest recommendation as a professional in his field.
Peter Klenk ESQ is a thoughtful and capable attorney who we work with on estate planning issues. His firm recently provided us with new Wills, Power of Attorneys and our instructions regarding major health issues. These documents are important for estate and life planning. Peter and his team are masters in the complexities of Estate Law. We highly recommend Peter and his Associates to provide thoughtful advice and outstanding work on these complex issues of the law. Make sure your estate planning documents are up to date, and Peter can be relied on to do an excellent job. Well done Peter!
Peter was excellent. He explained everything very clearly and is super friendly. My wife and I originally tried using a lawyer through group legal coverage, but unfortunately the old adage - "you get what you pay for" - applied to the other lawyer, and we decided to go with a real professional.
